National Poetry Writing Month Twenty-Four

Prompts One and Two

It's gettin' hot in here

Weather Underground says the temperature is 69°
Wikipedia says Weather Underground takes its name from
     a 1960s militant student group
CBS This Morning says one man is behind one-third of
     what's on Wikipedia
Steven Pruitt says he takes his username from his favorite
     opera character
Gianni Schicchi says the punishment for falsifying a will is
     exile and loss of a hand
My hand says my punishment is to shiver on a 69° day because
     I didn't wear gloves
My mother says the wind here is a humid cold that weighs
     into the bones
The wind says the sun will soon turn militant so take off all
     you know
